A House committee will launch a formal impeachment investigation into President Joe Biden over his family’s business dealings, as ordered by Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday.
According to McCarthy, the House Oversight Committee’s investigation has exposed a “culture of corruption” within the Biden family, as Republicans probe the business dealings of Hunter Biken from before he became president.

The House of Representatives needs to investigate the allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption, according to McCarthy. McCarthy spoke outside the speaker’s office at the Capitol. “My directive is for our House committee to initiate a formal impeachment investigation into President Joe Biden.”
The announcement is made as the Republican leader faces mounting pressure from his right flank to take action against Biden, while also struggling to pass legislation that would prevent a shutdown of the federal government at the end of this month.
McCarthy is set to hold backdoor meetings with lawmakers this week, including a meeting on the impeachment of Biden.
The Republican leader is facing a political dilemma again as he seeks to keep his conservative lawmakers from being ousted. McCarthy’s difficulty with the impeachment investigation and the threat of government shutdown is rooted in his familiar political quandary.
The impeachment effort has been denounced by Biden’s administration as politically motivated.
The American people are at risk of facing severe consequences from the far-right and extremist individuals who are threatening to impeach President Biden without evidence, according to White House spokesperson Ian Sams.
Trump, who was impeached twice by the House but acquitted twice in the Senate, is now facing more severe charges in court. He has been indicted four times this year, including for trying to overturn Biden’s victory in 2020.
Rep. Jamie Raskin, the leading Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, stated that the objective of this effort is to establish a false moral equivalence between Donald Trump and the former president who was indicted.
Hunter Biden’s business dealings are being investigated by House Republicans, who have not yet established a clear link between him and the president. They have highlighted some cases where the older BiDEN would speak with his son during his tenure as Barack Obama’S vice president and during dinners he was hosting with business partners.
The Oversight Committee’s Republican chairman, Rep. James Comer, is conducting a more thorough investigation into the finances of the Biden family and is anticipated to request banking records for Hunter Bidon.
